Clearing Away Clutter for God

On another page here I have a humongous list of links to Anglican bloggers. There is no way I can keep up with them all and I don’t try. But when I decide it’s time to check ’em out, one I nearly always visit is the blog of Kyle Potter, aka “Captain Sacrament.” He’s a fellow Kentuckian, and a recent recipient of a Master’s in Theology from Oxford–if I am remembering correctly. One of the facetious taglines for his blog, “with nice vestments and tea at 4,” hooked me right away. I like his style.

I like his analogy in this helpful piece on worship in small group settings.

I often keep a cluttered space at home, and when someone comes to visit, I have to pick up all the clutter, coats and clothing off the chair so they can sit down. Worship is somewhat like this – making a space for God to enter, by quieting our hearts and being still. The liturgy we use – whether simple or complex – is a way of knocking away the clutter and inviting Jesus in.

Read it all.

About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.
